My husband travels pretty often for work, and I really think the worst part of him being gone (other than missing him, obviously) is dishes. Let me explain – at the end of a long day of school and 5 million other activities, getting 4 young kids fed, bathed and to bed is pretty much like running a marathon. Because our house is pretty much 100% chaos between the hours of 5-8, I usually focus all of my energy on getting the kids to bed, and the dishes become an after thought. It never fails – I finally get the last kid to bed and breathe a sigh of relief. Then I walk downstairs and back into the kitchen and want to run far, far away. Finding the strength to get those dishes done at that point is next to impossible. That’s why recipes like this One Pot Lasagna Soup are perfect for me. There is SO MUCH less clean-up!

I went out to lunch a couple days ago and when I was looking through the menu I came across a pasta with arrabbiata sauce. I had forgotten how much I loved this simple, spicy tomato sauce and I was determined to make it for myself when I got home! It took a little trial and error, but I finally came up with (in my opinion) the perfect balance of garlic, spice and basil flavors. This Easy, Spicy Arrabbiata Sauce would be delicious served with pasta, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash or with any meat. I hope you love it!
